Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Our Best of Portugal has a heavy focus on regional & local cuisine and responsible, sustainable agriculture. We work with our local hotel partners to ensure fresh, locally sourced breakfasts and we visit locally owned restaurants that prioritize regional cuisine such as seafood with as much attention to sustainable practices as possible. Our winery partners use environmentally sound agricultural practices including organic and biodynamic along with a strong focus on water conservation.

Any time we buy snacks for the road, we look for fresh and local bites; in Portugal this might be fresh-squeezed orange juice, a delicious pastry from the local baker, or an afternoon wine from the region.

On all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Our Best of Portugal itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our boutique hotels, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants. Our accommodations are small, generally with around 10 rooms, and pride themselves in showcasing their local community including the neighborhood we stay in and the fresh, local food that they serve.

Our local tour guides are residents of the respective city and know its achievements & challenges, history and culture and provide in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience.

We also engage in a community partner activity to learn about art for social inclusion in Lisbon. We'll have a several hour excursion walking through this unique barrio with time to engage, ask questions, and see first-hand the impact that they've had. 3% of trip sales are donated to the NGO partner.
